Community Engagement

HUPO works to facilitate relationships between planning students and community organizations, often through public events and facilitation of learning opportunities. These activities include workshops with high school students through Project Link and other collaborations local volunteer groups.

The annual Park(ing) Day is perhaps the most visible effort. Each year HUPO members construct furniture out of discarded shipping pallets, practice sustainable methods of community engagement, and have a fun day of conversation with other GSD students, other community groups, and interested neighborhood residents.
